Will my 3 year Degree with 4 years of experience qualify me to do an LLM in Germany?


I have a three-year law degree from a university in the Caribbean and 2 years post-graduate certificate in law. I also have 3 years of experience in practising law, however, my GPA is relatively low., 2.67 (USA conversion) to be exact. I did better in my postgraduate though but a GPA system was not used. I also started my own company after graduating and have garnered 4 years of experience through it. I have employed a few people and I am very involved in my community. I am looking to do an LLM preferably in Germany, but I am not sure if my three-year degree will be sufficient since most university I am looking at requires a 4-year degree. I am wondering if my work experience and my two-year certificate will be taken into account and whether my grades are good enough, for an English taught LLM. Any suggestions and feedback are welcome.

There are very few 4 year common law degrees, so I suspect you will be considered equivalent for admission purposes.
